Abstract: In this study we have made an attempt to find out the reason behind the child labour in town. Children are the future of this Nation. They are considered as the most important asset of the society. Any future of the nation is depending on how children grow and develop themselves. The issue of child labour is continuously grabbing the attention of the world. Child labour deprives children of their childhood, interferes with their ability to attend regular school and which is mentally, physically, socially, or morally dangerous and harmful. These children work in extremely inhuman conditions, which constitutes a violation of their fundamental rights guaranteed to them under the Constitution of India and other international conventions. The objective of the study is to find out the real scenario of the child labour and why they are getting deprived of childhood and primary education. So, the study has been conducted at Asansol Town with the help of structured questionnaire. A total of hundred sample respondents were taken based on a random sampling technique for the study and those are available during the survey. The study will also reveal the relation between the root cause and socio-economic conditions of child labour. Finally, some suggestions would be made to stop child labour and improve the socio-economic condition in the selected area of Asansol Town.
